Earlier this month, we had exclusively reported that Redmi will launch the Redmi Note 10S in the Indian market soon and we had also revealed its RAM, storage, and color options. Well, our information seems to be spot on. Today, Redmi India has made a tweet teasing the launch of a new smartphone in the country. Although the brand hasn’t revealed the name of the smartphone, the hidden clues in the tweet suggest that the Remdi Note 10S India launch is imminent. The Redmi Note 10S made its global debut in March alongside other Redmi Note 10 series devices.
Redmi Note 10S set to launch in India soon
The aforementioned tweet from Redmi has an image that shows a unique retail box. This package teases several features of the smartphone. As you can see, the image hints that the upcoming smartphone will have a 64MP camera, Hi-Res audio, and that it will be available in three colors, blue, black, and silver. Now, the Redmi Note 10S has these features and is also available in the three colors teased by Redmi. So, there is a strong possibility that Redmi is talking about the Redmi Note 10S India launch here.
It is also worth mentioning that the box has “12.5” written on it. This could either mean that the Redmi Note 10S will come loaded with the MIUI 12.5 or it could also mean that the Redmi Note 10S launch date in India is May 12th. Or maybe it indicates both. There is currently no information regarding Redmi Note 10S price in India. However, going by the specifications, we expect the Redmi Note 10S to be priced more than Redmi Note 10.
